These are exactly the same thing as the City Pickers branded version of the container that was on sale from Home Depot for the same price but the deal has expired expired. Very popular deal and very popular item. It's only available in the brown color and price is for store pickup at a B&M location.

Grabbed six of the City Pickers last year and just had a blast using them and it has made some fresh vegetables way easy. The big bonus is the wicking watering system that works very well. Plants grow fast, healthy and strong. Do follow the direction to the T if you do want success. The directions can be seen here and will give you some idea of how the system works.

These things are well loved get 4.5 to 5 star reviews with this one being kind of typical. See the second attached picture from this owner to see a real world example of what you can expect.

've tried container gardening before, with no success. Yields were poor and the containers required constant attention. My brother recommended these so I bought two and planted three tomato plants in each, plus two bell peppers in one and two cucumbers in the other (a total of five plants per container). As can be seen from my photos, five plants is too much for these containers! The growth in just four weeks absolutely blew me away. The plants have uninhibited access to all the water they can use, and I can still go out of town for a few days and come back to healthy plants rather than wilted remains on the verge of death in the hot North Carolina sun.
I followed the instructions exactly, including the trough down the center, with a granular fertilizer marketed for tomato plants. I used regular mulch rather than the included plastic cover (which seems more suited for seeding than store bought plants).

Wow don and mitch, everyone in this thread is now dumber for having listened to you two bicker and get way off topic. Getting back on track:

* The resin used in this product is food safe High Density Polyethylene. It is chemically inactive, BPA free and Phthalate free. (Very Food Safe). For long range, the plastic is colorized with UV additives (also chemically inert) to prevent long term degredation in direct sunlight.

thats taken from the emsco website, this stuff is made in USA if that still means anything, no need to criticize a deal unless you have first hand experience and facts straight with the product, yes plastics are everywhere in our lives including in direct contact with our food supply, yes there are plenty of natural toxins, no there is probably not a need to be unduly afraid of either in practical day to day life, please lets not make comments personal and please do not fear monger.
I feel like I'm in the damn twilight zone reading the last 2 pages of this thread. I just want to know what veggies are easiest to grow in these. We bought a raised bed kit, spent money setting it all up in the yard and I'm 99% sure my wife didn't take care of it cause it wasn't conveniently on the patio. This seems like it would be perfect.

Anybody have any idea if that means forever or is it a temporary sale. Either way it is the same price as the Home Depot ones on sale were.

Yes they are the same If you see the attached instructions when you look up the Emsco Group instructions you get the City Pickers instructions. Just some branding going on for different retailers I guess.
I thought the Home Depot deal was marked as dead?

My home depot in Montgomery county does in stock at 19.98 so it's the same price then.

I have done this and it's crazy easy - maybe like an hour's worth of work. But I'm considering buying a commercial one because I want it to be on a deck or patio where people are going to see it, and the Rubbermaid version looks pretty janky.

Bought two last year with the HD deal and just picked up a third one on sale this week at HD. Fantastic for growing greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. Super easy.

Use cedar fence planks and untreated 2x4s. Not quite 6x4, but you can build decent size raised bed with 6 fence planks and 1.5 2x4. Bed cost about $20...until you fill it. Figure another $60 to $80 for soil.

I have a lot of spare soil, so hopefully won't cost too much

how do you join everything together, with lag bolts?
